I did a couple of trials with fallback in different viewers:
ADE (Sony PRS-650), iBooks and Bluefire seems to honour them, Aldiko just ignores the whole font, Calibre and Sigil don't use fallback glyphs and displays the dreaded rectangle. I agree that the span trick is messy, but it might be a bit more robust. Your call
